that the holder justice department threw out, yeah. >> you tried to run with the shirley sherrod. >> this was not a smart -- nice try but this was all the far left fanning the flames of these stories trying to accuse racism where it didn't exist. >> look, the far left looks at the same polls that the republicans do, that whenever the president is talking about race, it fans the flames of white racial resentment and his numbers go down. you learned that last summer when you saw him step out henry lewis gates issue. that's how they learned how to play the racial resentment card. that's what's been going on. numbers of people think the president is a muslim have been going up. simply stick to say all white people are opposing him because of race. >> chris, go ahead. >> this is ridiculous. okay, so then i guess if i follow that logic then all of the black people who don't support bush, they are racist? i mean, that makes no sense. >> no. >> hold on, hold on. >> as it relates to. so things that you said relative to shirley sherrod. shirley sherrod was fired by the department of agric
church. shirley sherrod is the inaugural speaker for a series called sundays with the met. sherrod was forced to resign when a conservative blogger posted veo of her appearing to make racist remarks, but it was later shown the video was heavily edited and taken out of context. sundays with the met is a weekly series designed to show the roles of individuals who made difference to the afran-american legacy. >>> preparing for disaster. airport personnel and near by ergency agencies tested their reaction to a simulated accid t accident. you saw this live on our a yesterday morning. an airplane crashes while landing, slamming into cars and anirport shuttle. they set the plane on fire, as you can see. they simulated treating victims. organizers of the drill hope the hands-on experience will help save lives in the event of a real tragedy. >> local high school students and their parents got schooled on how to pay for school. adssions officers and financial aid experts wer on hand to help families of the 2010 college and financial aid expo. about 30 local colleges and universities offer t
. sherrod, racist. the president thinks like a kenyan. these comments keep getting higher and higher on the crazy score from a man who's not crazy. is it evil? >> i think two things. one, i think he's not -- nobody's going to get to the right of newt on these issues. and so, you know, whoever's out there waving the kind of judeo, christian, white american banner, newt's not going to be outwaved. the second thing is, i think that on an intellectual level, perhaps he buys into the -- >> is this how a guy in his third marriage does it? you find some common ground from the far right, you show you hate as much they do and therefore, you might be a good, christian gentleman? >> perhaps. i'm against icelandic law. icelandic law. russian law. we should not apply them in united states courts. he is underestimated by a lot of people on how seriously he could be. i think he's going to run and if you think about how this election is going to break down, there are going to be party regulars. mitt romney being the de facto front-runner of that group. the other people, some of which is native, some
candidates. the poll does not include a margin of error. and sherrod brown is calling for the nfl to change the blackout policy. his hometown is cleveland where ntl games are not shown on tv if the games are notold out 72 hours in advance. nfl commissioner goodell says the policy is good for the league. there were about 22 blackouts last season. sherrod brown says people can't afford the tickets. they average $77 for the game. he believes you're punishing the midd class working people who want to see it but can't go. phil davidson is defending a passionate speech that may have helped him lose his campaign from treasurer. davidson says he has master's degree in communicationan he won't apologize for the tone used in the speech. it has become an internet sensation. and he says,, bically, he was being passnate. those are the things we thought you should know today. >>> and finally, crossing the line, you're going to have to tell me about this one. when are you too old to wear certain things? here is cher. the legendary 64-year-old superstar was wearing, whichs what she was wearing when sheag
infrastructure projects. senator sherrod brown got a shoutout at the beginning of the president's speech. it's good to see you. thank you for joining me, senator. >> thanks. good to be with you. >> we have two very opposing view, one from your fellow ohioan, john boehner, one from the president. what's going to fix this economy, senator? >> well, john boehner's shoe is to goat knovote no. we're going to vote on a bill next week that the chamber of commerce have supported. a lot of these are republican ideas, targeted tax cuts for the middle class. targeted tax cuts,ç especially for small business, which is the way we need to go to get this economy back in gear. two out of three new jobs in this country are created by small business. and the president, in addition, wants to take away the tax insentives for companies in the tax loopholes for companies to outsource jobs, instead reward those companies here and incent them to manufacture in the united states. i was in ohio today where first day the chevy cruise is coming off the line. because of the investment wes made in the auto industry, th
dean as his chief of staff or sherrod brown or someone clearly the 100% ada rating, someone clearly on the sflest do you think that's reasonable if they make that demand? >> no, and i'mç not hearing th demand. i'm hearing a concern about what is a crazy notion that he would appoint a republican. he's not going to do that. i'm not really hearing anybody coalesce around a particular ideological figure, though sherrod brown is a great -- would be a great choice, but i'm not hearing that. here's what i am hearing, chris. i'm hearing people say that they would like it if obama's chief of staff did not refer to the progressive pace as f'ing retarded and did not refer to unions also using the "f" bomb. they would like it if obama's chief of staff would cheat the progressive base with the respect, with the respect that we are due, and i think they would also like it if that person cannot have ties to wall street because rahm left the wall street, god bless him, made a lot of money in banking for his family. i think there's a feeling that the obama white house has been too close to wall st
're not covering that event, that's a lie. you know, just like the shirley sherrod incident recently, we had to set that straight. not because we're any great shakes. you did some of those interviews, i did the interview with the two old southern farmers who came on my air and said, you know what, shirley sherrod is a good woman and she's not a racist. between andrew brightbart and fox news -- >> it was andrew breitbart's very incomplete story about shirley sherrod. >> andrew breitbart's story about a woman who was trying to make a point that she was not a bigot or a racist look like a bigot and a racist. that's to a certain extent -- well, it's an injustice, that's being done to a good woman. and breitbart did that. to be clear, because they said we did, no, no, as soon as they put that on his website, fox news put it on their website. >> when you're deciding, because it's an obvious decision some days to be fox's fact-checker. what raises it to the level that you have to then get involved and call somebody else out on something you think isn't true? because clearly, there are all sorts of people
out. shirley sherrod was forced to quit after a blogger posted her message on discrimination. she spoke on sunday at a d.c. church and karen gray houston was there. >> reporter: the metropolitan african methodist episcopal church has hosted statesmen and civil rights leaders. it's undergoing a major renovation and that did not stop shire sherrod from telling her story. >> this persons with e-mailing me, saying you should be ashamed of yourself. >> reporter: she is still haunted by the video. >> if you have a white person say their story. >> reporter: a conservative blogger posted excerpts seemed to show she withheld assistance from a georgia farmer because he was white. >> i just knew the administration would support me. >> reporter: she was talking about her own racial transformation. but the truth did not get out until she was forced to resign. president obama apologized. she declined an offer to go back to agriculture. she said she's shoeing blogger andrew brightbart. >> do the right thing and god will help you through any situation. >> reporter: folks who heard her remarks had
on the part of dividuals. he we want over sherrod. he referred to sotomayor as a woman latino woman racist. he seems to like to point that way. is this to give cover to something on his side? why is he also saying racist, racist,r racist, about minoritie minorities? >> it's something he didn't do as much of when he had a position of power. he did it when he was trying to get republicans back into power. he sees his job as getting on tv, getting arguments on to tv and into the discourse which he's doing here. it really isn't befitting to the spouse. this almost reminds me of rand paul talking about the civil rights act. these are things perfectly fine. these are things okay to dish about at an intellectual level. i don't think he makes that connection. he's used to being a polical celebrity. >> howard, you and i talk politics a lot to understand the way people play the game. as awful and evil as it may be, could it be he's attacking barack obama when he's down? the polls are tough now. the right direction, wrong directi direction are terrible. the democrats are facing a -- so why not hit his he
for a half million dollars in bail. the family says they condition afford it. sherrod and two friends denied charges they are spies. the three were arrested last year while hiking along the iraq iran border. the court battle over health care resumes today. >>> and nasa takes video of the massive hurricane churning in the middle of the atlantic ocean. here's howard we will show you igor and other satellites for a second and we will tell you how warm it will get today and when we may expect another chance of much-needed and no mess. new icy hot power gel. don't mess around with pain. ♪ i like your messy hair ♪ i like the clothes you wear ♪ i like the way you sing ♪ and when you dance with me ♪ you always make me smile ♪ don't know why i love you [ male announcer ] we believe you're at your best when you can relax and be yourself. and at thousands of newly refreshed holiday inn hotels, you always can. holiday inn. stay you. >>> here's a look at hurricane igor from space. it poses no immediate threat to land. tropical storm-force winds extend up to 175 miles from the eye of the hurri
later in the show. >>> joining me is sherrod brown. >> thanks, ed. >> what did he do today to stop government in its tracks? >> well, you hit it right on the head. they will do whatever it takes. demint is -- i don't know if he's -- if this is any different from all along, but every chance they've got, for a year and a half while we've tried to govern, from health care reform to wall street reform, to the children's health insurance program, which met millions of children, to equal pay for women, to lilly ledbetter, to credit card reform, all these things, while we were gonching, republicans, led by demint in most cases, were trying to stop it. >> senator, this takes it to a new level, does it not? >> i think it does. i think he's going to try to stop us from doing anything. we're about to pass the continuing resolution and go back and campaign in our states, those that are up for election in the house, everybody up for reelection, but demint and others have played that game all along. they don't want president obama to succeed. the whole point is that democrats -- republicans pay
to the united states and diminish a particularly ugly brand of outsourcing as described by senator shar sherrod brown of ohio. >> they'll build factories in another country and sell the products back to the u.s. never have large number of businesses and industries done that, to my knowledge before and went from 1 million manufacturing jobs ten years ago, and then during the bush years, it slunk to 600,000 manufacturing jobs in this country. >> joining me now the executive director for democracy for america. good evening. good to see you in person. >> good evening, keith. thank you. >> is this what it looks like? is senator demint busting a tea party on backs of both parties? >> the tea party's been working to take over the republican party. so it's clearly a maneuver that allows us to see what the tea party wants. and honestly, keith, it's not so different. jim demint said right here that he is the party of no. that the tea party, the republican party doesn't matter. he doesn't want anything passed. what this move effectively does is slows down all legislation in the senate. >> but any senator
who plans to burn korans is still going. he's pulling a shirley sherrod. stg for a phone call from the president. my goodness. the state department issuing a worldwide travel warning for american this is afternoon. instead of ignoring this guy, our president hauz joined the vatican along with angelina jolie and a string of others deciding he had to weigh in. >> i want him to understand that this stunt that he is talking about pulling could greatly endanger our young men and women in uniform in iraq and afghanistan. >> people just won't shut up about this. it looks like terry jones has a new disciple. a baptist minister in tennessee says he'll burn the koran on tuesday, too. easy for fundamentalists in afghanistan who want to kill us. that's after the hate e-mails pored into them. and folks who say the flight 93 memorial in pennsylvania resembles the islamic crescent. the outrage. the justice department currently investigating anti muslim incidents in at least five u.s. cities. whether it's muslims, blacks, gay people, jews, you pick it. history shows when americans or any group of

had enough evidence to convict and they choose not to do so. >> they felt the suspect james sherrod was guilty but said investigators didn't provide enough evidence. justice was never served and the pain never goes away. >> my brother was there. i can't even say this out loud. i am sorry. that myra's story isn't unique. >> that's an example of the problem of the csi effect is robert blake case. >> robert blake was a hollywood icon charged for the murder of his wife. >> we the jury in the above entitled action find robert make not guilty of first degree murder. >> experts argue csi effect is tainting the jury pool. there are some jurors who would disagree with that assertion. >> thomas nicholson was the four man on the robert blake murder trial. the idea that they were tainted by the csi effect is laughable. >> that is a a very silly assumption somebody would be influenced the tv program by some activist -- actors acting a role. >> he wasn't convicted because he couldn't put the gun in his hand. there was no time at all there was evidence to prove that he in fact even ever touched th
gingrich has a history of finding racist on the part of liberals. gone arch shirley sherrod who was working for the agricultural department. calling her a black racist. he referred to sotomayor who was named to the supreme court and confirmed as a woman -- a latino woman racist. he seems to like to point that way. is this to give cover to something on his side? what's he up to here? why is he also saying racist, racist, racist, about minorities? >> well it's something that he didn't do quite as much ofwhen he had position of power. he's been in that crou for a while now. he did it when he was trying to get republicans back into power. he sees his job as getting on tv, getting arguments on to tv and into the discourse which he's doing here. it really isn't befitting the statesman, the speaker of the house. this almost reminds me of rand paul talking about civil rights act, as the kind of theory. there's things, it's perfectly fine -- well maybe not perfectly fine. these are things that are okay to dish about in an intellectual level but these are, you know, weird allegations to make about th
democratic senator sherrod brown. senator brown, how do you look at this from a political strategy standpoint? again, the early appearances are that it may benefit a little bit of the overall democratic momentum. do you share that sentiment? >> well, i guess, that is a lot of inside baseball. and probably that is what most people are saying. i think you look a couple of ways, dylan. one this is the eighth time that the republican establishment, washington, has endorsed a senate candidate, eight different states, the eighth time that candidate has lost. so the disconnect between the republican establishment and washington in the grass roots of their own party. the other lesson is that people are clearly angry and have a right to be. the issue ultimately is who got us into this situation? how do we get out? we are losing 800,000 jobs a year ago when president obama took the oath of office. 800,000 a month. now we are gaining jobs not fast enough. but i think the voters are smart enough to think we don't want to go back to this crowd, the people that brought us into this. and in my state that is
and about shirley sherrod and, you know, in a way that suggests this whole sort of bizarre clash of civilizations idea, the notion that what he would consider as us, the whole kind of anglo-american, judeo-christian white enterprise is being besieged by other civilizations "countdown with keith olbermann" number one among them being islam. you know, and i hope he doesn't but one wonders if that idea actually has some purchase inside the unkempt thing that is the head of newt gingrich. >> given that we were colonies and we rebelled, we were anti-colonialists, when did anti-colonialism become anti-american? i thought we've almost always worked with the colonies who sought to get out from under the thumb of the european colonists. >> yeah, because we didn't like being colonies. we didn't like colonialism. but somehow, again, inside his head, that narrative has been twisted and one imagines that he fancies himself as a retired british colonel in 1963 sitting around in his armchair puffing his pipe saying who lost kenya, that sort of thing. >> why do they call roddesia -- what is his
controversy in new york, you have the phony accusations against shirley sherrod. are the media playing an inflammatory role? >> the media's undoubtedly playing an inflammatory role to the extent that at this point cable tv is only about conflict and the web is there to amplify it. but the fact is it is what it is. the media isn't going to change. that aspect of life isn't going to change. so it actually behooves people who are actually facing controversial things to be very, very careful when they're going in that they're not going to start pressing all these buttons. >> why are you so willing to accept it as a fact of life? it seems to me, especially if race is involved, if religion is involved, if some fringe character like this pastor terry jones is involved, we not only obsess on this story, we practically create the story. and you're saying that i should just accept that because that's the way it is. >> well, i don't think it's attractive to accept it, but i think we live in a world where there's massive aspects of the media which can't in any sense be controlled. i'm talking abou
in the show. joining me now is a true crusader for the middle class, sherrod brown sits on the senate appropriations and banking committee. good to have you with us tonight. >> good to be back, ed, thanks. >> you bet. i think the president hit it out of the park today focusing on jobs while i nope a lot in the media has been talked about this koran burning in florida. but it is about jobs. i want you to comment if you can on your colleague in ohio, how he has now thrown his support behind this bill. what does that mean? >> i'm proud of my senior senator from ohio, george voinovich. he stood up and did the right thing. what he said was he was tired of the messaging and politics coming out of the republican leader's office, mish mcconnell. when mcconnell goes to the floor and finds all kinds of obscure reasons nonsubstantive reasons to block what the president is trying to do, i think it sums up this way. for a year and a half the president and democrats in the senate and house have tried to govern and we've passed lots of things that have begun to turn this economy around. the republic
of the scene this is on will path road. police say when an officer tried to stop 47 year-old robert sherrod for a warrant. he took off on foot to clear the neighborhood and searched the area turns out he fled to a nearby house inside that house there's a woman he did know she armed herself with a knife and cut cherry. he fled and police eventually found him hiding in a nearby shopping center brush. >> president, said today he has to shoulder some of the blame for the core reception to his health care reform. congress passed a legislation six months ago the new poll shows many voters do not like to understand it. if the president said he hopes that will change after the first goes into effect tomorrow. >> health care was one of those issues that we could no longer ignore. the president said he felt himself for failing to convince americans that the health reform act will improve their lives. >> your not going bankrupt it you're not losing your house if heaven forbid you end up having an accident. >> as of tomorrow health plan providers will no longer be able to cancel your coverage if you ge
with the election of president obama from the sherrod incident to the henry louis gates incident now to some of the voting patterns sea we're in the there yet. and we made a lot of progress. the election of barack obama showed mechanic can mature but we are not all the way there. when i was a teenager and got to be 16, i was more mature than i was at 1 but i wasn't grown yet. america has not grown yet. we're just older. we showed that with the election of president obama. we're in the there yet. i think the racial divide on this vote was clear. now, people on both sides of the divide need to ask themselves why is there still a day vied. is it because our lives are different economically, educationally and how do we really close the gap. you can't just do it by socially saying we are all one and kumbaya. you have to make a fair and equal set to. until we have equal opportunity and equal protection under the law, there will not be a solving of the racial divide. >> you are talking about all those issue. also esh holdings coming out looking at some of the gr
